 Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar Ltd CSR initiatives win CII’s National Award

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar Ltd. is working hard at the grassroots level towards the development of  natural and human resources and their efficient and judicious use. Under the related activities, the company has initiated and integrated community development programs for stressed farmers in the suicide- prone zone of Wardha district in the Vidarbha region, focusing particularly on water harvesting and its efficient utilization.  Under the integrated water resources development programme, BHSL constructs Check Dams, Percolation Tanks and Ponds/ Farm Ponds, besides working on the revival of rivers through the dredging and widening of river beds, bori bandhs, inter-linking of water bodies through link water channels/ canals, wells and bore wells, recharging through rain water, gabion structures and farm bunds, etc. Along with water harvesting measures, the company is equally emphatic on the efficient use of water in the agriculture sector. It promotes micro irrigation systems like drip and sprinkler irrigation systems, horticulture plantation, dairy farming and less water-intensive short duration cash crops. Dedicated efforts have seen us reach 101 villages of Wardha district and consequently, 8380 acres of agricultural land and 4473 farmers have directly benefitted. All these programs are being planned and implemented through an experienced professional team under the Kamalnayan Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation based at Wardha.

Appreciating BHSL’s efforts, NABARD has now joined hands with us for the promotion of horticulture (Wadi Project) and the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) too has recognized our water harvesting efforts. BHSL has won the CII’s National Award for Excellence in Water Management 2010 in the category “Excellent Water Efficient Unit - Beyond the Fence 2010”.
